Nkechi Feaster, Constituent Leadership Program Coordinator
Nkechi Feaster is a community organizer-activist, as well as a spoken word poet. The bulk of her work has been around advocacy for affordable housing. She has been involved in organizing through Fair Budget Coalition, ONE DC, Service 2 Justice and various other community projects for a number of years. Nkechi began her organizing out of necessity through personal experiences of being laid off in the Recession of 2007 which led to her experiencing homelessness as a single mother. Through the many failures of job placement programs and housing programs, Nkechi became involved in the fight to change the systems that upheld so many forms of oppression. Nkechi has been featured in the Washington Post, the City Paper, NPR and more discussing her continued fight for affordable housing in DC.
